How do we ensure equitable access to opportunities for physical activity in our communities?
Join BC Healthy Communities Society for a live province-wide livestream featuring thought leaders and innovators in conversation about the planning and policy approaches communities can use to ensure healthy communities for all. This event invites local government officials, planners and recreation programmers, as well as health authority staff and physical activity researchers, to learn about the tools and approaches they can use to ensure everyone in our communities can be physically active.
This event is presented by BC Healthy Communities Society through its PlanH program. This event is made possible with the generous assistance of a Stream of Consciousness 2020 Vision Grant.
